"In No One Makes You Shop at Wal-Mart, Tom Slee unpacks what it means to believe in the power of choice. Pointing out that individual choice has become the lynchpin of a neo-conservative ideology he calls MarketThink, Slee urges us to re-examine popular assumptions. He draws on game theory to argue that individual choice is not inherently bad. Nor is it the panacea that corporations and governments claim it to be." "A spirited treatise, this book will make you think about choice in a whole new way."--P. [4] of cover.
